User unknown in virtual mailbox table
Hi all,

I configured a domain server hosting multiple domains.

I followed this tutorial (perfect server)

I bought the ISPConfig3 manual and configured mailman as put right there.

I created some mailing lists and when I try to send a mail to one, I always get a bounce with the following message:


Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table
Normal email traffic is working okay. mailing lists don't.

I have the following line in my /etc/postfix/transport:
Quote: mailman:
What am I missing? Do I need to have an MX record pointing to my server? I thought I could relay that locally on the server.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Any advice ? I've exactly the same problem...

In the automated message of mailman you are adviced to send emails to <listname>
I found out that this should be <listname>
That solved it for me. Actually a workaround, because there is still some misconfiguration somewhere. But it's workable.
Good luck!

Thank you.
Just tried this but it doesn't work for me :confused:. I'll leave it like this until someone solve the bug :D

I've one more problem, the domain doesn't work neither.
When I create the list, the guy who receive the mail has to click on a link like this:
But that doesn't work. What is working is
I made several research, I found some (old) thread, I checked my conf files (mailman and Postfix) and they seem good.
I use ISPConfig on Debian7.
If any one has a solution?
